Non-cotton active sports shirts

Post by chumley » Feb 28 2013 6:14 pm

Different manufacturers have different names for their sports shirts. Most use similar technology to wick away moisture while still breathing well. They are often expensive, and once they've been used a few times, the stink will never wash out.

Which is why I'm posting that Old Navy has their own brand called Active something or another, and the shirts are normally $13, but currently on sale for $9.

For $9, why not get a few and just plan on getting rid of them when they get too ripe?

They come in an array of colors, including electric Bob. (http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=257068)

I have no affiliation with Old Navy nor the 8-year old Malaysian girls who make their clothes. Just thought I'd mention it cause I thought it was a good deal.

I did but can't find the shorts on the website, but I did find them on Amazon. I wonder if it's not the same company. Is the logo on the shorts the same as the logo on the website?

Yes it is the same logo. I really like the shorts and zippers are better than Velcro.

I withhold laughter as long as the number is high enough to ensure poor visibility.

Thanks Chumley for the Old Navy tip, I picked up 3 short sleeve and one long sleeve over the weekend.
Not saying I have the same problem with stench not washing out, maybe time to wash your "pack and shoulder straps"...

So in the exact opposite direction of Old Navy, I was recently gifted a Patagucci shirt that has performed amazingly well. While super-thin, it's made of merino wool rather than some poly blend. After days of use, it doesn't hold my stink either. Even before washing it! :y:

Now if only it didn't cost $70. :o

Aw heck, who worries about 'my stink' anymore?
After wearing the same clothes for three weeks in Tanzania I was just beginning to smell like the local folk... another week and I may have been just ripe enough to fit in.
:o

P.S. I did change underwear at least a few times during the three weeks... :whistle:

I miss living in Boise and having the Sierra Trading Post outlet store down the street from my house. Great place to stock up on cheap outdoor clothing.

I stopped by there in July. It was nice, but I would have liked it better if the store had more of the dress clothes they sell online. I did get an excellent pair of pants for $10.

It's an outlet store, so hit and miss on what they have. Some weeks they have lots of dress clothes.
